Good evening everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous Thursday!  Tonight I am super excited to finally share the new Seas and Greetings Collection by China Glaze.  This is a gorgeous 12 piece collection that is a fabulous twist on your traditional holiday lacquers.  Seas and Greetings Collection is a tropical escape from the dreary winter days and will certainly warm you up.  Today’s post will be extremely photo heavy so let’s just dive on in to some gorgeous China Glaze lacquers.

First up we have Seas and Greetings.  This is a warm deep purple shade with a strong golden pink shimmer.  Application and formula were both flawless.  This color was simply stunning and perfect for anytime of year.  In my photos I am wearing just two coats of Seas and Greetings.

Next we have Eat, Pink, Be Merry.  This is a baby pink creme with a golden shimmer.  This color did apply a bit patchy so you will need multiple coats for a solid finish or use a coordinating base color.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Eat, Pink, Be Merry.

Now for Joy to the Waves.  This is a shimmery periwinkle blue with a strong green shimmer.  While I had no issues with formula, the finish is streaky due to the metallic shimmer.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Joy to the Waves.

Now for one of my favorites.  Warm Wishes is an amazing a warm bright coral creme with a subtle shimmer.  Application and formula were both flawless.  In my photos I am wearing three thin coats.

Now for another favorite!  Snow Way! is a stunning white lacquer with a golden shimmer.  This shade is very much like the coveted Pearl Jammin’ so if you find it, you better grab it!  Application and formula again were flawless.  In my photos I am wearing three thin coats of Snow Way!.

Now for a glittery topper.  Twinkle Twinkle is a clear base blend filled with sea green blue iridescent glitter and flakes.  This ended up looking amazing over Snow Way! and I totally see myself using this combo again for a wintery background in one of my winter manis.  In my photos I am wearing just one coat of Twinkle Twinkle over Snow Way!.

Time for another favorite!  Tis the Sea Sun is a rich red orange creme that has a strong Crayola feel.  I loved this color and it’s formula was perfect.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Tis the Sea Sun.

Next up we have a great shimmer!  The More The Berrier is a gorgeous berry shimmer lacquer.  Application and formula were amazing, and I had zero streaking in the shimmer base.  In my photos I am wearing just two coats of The More The Berrier.

Now for another favorite, seems to be a pattern here!  Good Tide-ings is a rich lilac blue creme with great coverage and formula.  I had no issues at all with application and see this becoming one of my favorite China Glaze cremes.  In my photos I am wearing just two coats of Good Tide-ings.

Next up we have Sand in My Mistletoes.  This is a nude creme with pink undertones.  Personally, this is not a shade for me but would be a great color for some nail art.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Sand in My Mistletoes.

Time for the other glitter topper in Seas and Greetings.  Let’s Shell-ebrate is a clear base blend with gold and purple micro glitters.  Application was very smooth and glitter distribution perfect.  I found the brush and dab method to be the easiest for an even glitter finish.  In my photos I am wearing one coat of Let’s Shell-ebrate over Sand In My Mistletoes.

Now for the last shade and as the old saying goes…I have saved the best for last!  Partridge in a Palm is an amazing seafoam green matte lacquer.  I loved everything about this lacquer.  Dry times were quick and application fairly easy for a matte.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Partridge in a Palm, last photo with a glossy top coat.

    What a huge collection! Snow Way is definitely a favorite of mine too! And Eat Pink and Be Merry also speaks to me. The angelic shimmer in them makes me think of so many winter manis!!

    I really like your swatches, such a gorgeous collection full of winners. I couldn’t find Pearl Jammin’ so I really hope I can get Snow Way!

    Oh my goodness, that first purple shade! I need to scroll back up and find the name — and get it for my mom. She loves those types of purples!
